Wow can you believe it’s the end of another year. What a year we had with the best, hottest, longest summer the UK has had in a good few years. If you have been following me on social media you will know that I’ve had quite an astral year and to end the theme I have created this rather cute Powertex Stone Art Star. Here’s how I did it…
You will need a star base with hanger, Powertex in Ivory or White, Stone Art Powder, Extra fine snow glitter, fake snow and iridescent glitter flakes,Secret Art Loft Interference Lilac or Interference Blue Pigment, Powertex Easy Varnish and some flat back crystals with AB coating.
Working on one star arm at a time, brush on some Powertex Liquid Medium then gently press some stone art powder over the painted area. You might see some Powertex oozing out and if you do just press more Stone Art Powder over it. Once you have coated the star on both sides it will look like this:
Now dab on some more Powertex Liquid Medium and repeat the first step until you have completed three layers. This will give you a good strong finish. Let it dry. Next paint on a very fine layer of Powertex Liquid Medium on one full side and press the fine snow glitter into it. Repeat on the other side until it looks similar to this
Leave it to dry and clean away the excess glitter.
Top Tip: Keep a separate box for the left over stone Art powder, glitter and flake from this project – you can use it with Powertex in another project!
Once it is dry, use some Powertex Easy Varnish and Secret Art Loft Interference Lilac or Interference Blue pigment and add along the spine of each of the star arms. This will create highlights.
Once this has dried, add a light layer of Powertex to the outer edges of the star arms on both sides and press in some of the fake snow and iridescent glitter flakes.
Once this is dry add the final touch of some tiny AB coated flat back crystals. These will really catch the light. Leave it to dry well before adding to your festive house.
All that leaves me to do is to thank you for following us here on the the Powertex Blog and on Hochanda. I look forward to seeing your festive makes in The Powertex Studio and Powertex Addicts United.
I wish you all a very Merry of Christmas and may all your dreams come true!
See you in 2019 for lots more Powertex Fun!
